CMS was founded in 1969 by Charles E. Clark and son James E. Clark “Big Jim”, to service one major client’s warehousing and inventory. For over 35 years Continental Can and CMS partnership flourished and CMS was able to grow to a well-established business in Three Rivers, Michigan. In 1996 Continental Can’s employees went on strike and by the end of the week they had pulled the contract from CMS. CMS was forced to move out of their comfort zone.
Jamie Clark, son of James E. Clark had grown up around the family business and after attending school and working in corporate America, he looked upon what had happened at Continental Can and to CMS not as a negative, but as an opportunity. Jamie decided to capture this opportunity to evolve and grow CMS into an even larger business with a diverse customer pool.
1996 spawned that year of change for CMS. It was the tipping point that was needed to take a good company to a great company. Jamie Clark was able to partner with his father and jump into the family business hungry, motivated and looking to knock on doors and create lasting relationships with the community and businesses. Jamie and his father were the perfect match of wisdom and ambition and together they were able to bring out the best features in each other and look into the future to grow beyond what had become CMS’s comfort level. Since 1996 CMS has evolved into multiple companies, including: CMS Green, 3R Archives, I-Trailer and J & L Express. CMS has evolved from a business with 465,000 sqft and 15 trucks and trailers to a company with over 2,000,000 sqft and 2500 trailers.
